ABC News Live's "Countdown to the Emmys" 90-minute preshow will serve as a virtual red carpet ahead of the 72nd annual ceremony that features live interviews with nominees alongside looks at past red carpet fashion and previews of this year's "couch couture."

Before the 2020 Emmys ceremony kicks off on Sunday night, some of Hollywood's biggest stars will be swapping their red carpet walks for virtual drop-ins during ABC News Live's awards night preshow.

Entitled "Countdown to the Emmys," the 90-minute virtual red carpet will begin streaming live at 3:30 p.m. PT on Sunday, Sept. 20. Good Morning America's weekend co-anchors Eva Pilgrim and Whit Johnson, as well as ABC News correspondent Janai Norman, will host the preshow event from the ABC News headquarters in New York. ABC News correspondent Chris Connelly and ESPN’s The Undefeated senior entertainment reporter Kelley Carter will join the trio live from outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where host Jimmy Kimmel will emcee the awards ceremony.

Held directly ahead of the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, the online preshow will include live interviews with the diverse group of 2020 nominees. The event will also feature winner predictions, highlight the unprecedented year in TV production and look back on previous years' red-carpet fashion alongside glimpses of this year's “couch couture.”

This year's Emmys will be historic in more ways than one as it features not just a record number of Black nominees but a number of record-breaking nominees, including multiple double nominees alongside a history-making 160 nominations for Netflix. HBO's Watchmen scored the most nominations this year, 26 total, with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Mandalorian, Ozark, Schitt's Creek and Succession also among the most-nominated programs.

After last year's Emmys went without a host, Jimmy Kimmel returns to lead the 2020 Emmys in his third time hosting the ceremony. The 72nd Emmy Awards will air live on Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
